If there is one thing great that social media has brought to automotive fans is that we can all now get to see photos of cars way before its manufacturers officially release it!
The latest secret being undone by social media is regarding the 2021 Mercedes Benz S-Class. Although many pictures of it camouflaged have been shared before, the recent sharing of images by cochespias shows the Luxo barge free of any camo. The S-Class was due for a world debut later this year, but thanks to social media, we've just got it.
The 2021 S-Class' fascia looks like it will also follow Mercedes Benz's new design language as seen on the redesigned E-Class which was unveiled recently. A large grille is the centerpiece of the new Limo, and it's flanked by slim LED headlights and huge slats. Around the back are wraparound LED taillights topped with a chrome strip. What's with large grilles? Will that be the statement piece of the season on cars?
The most dramatic change happens on the inside though with the usual buttons and switches replaced with large touch screens with what looks like capacitive touch controls — one for the infotainment in the center console, and one for the instrument cluster. Obviously it will come with the latest edition MBUX, as will updated versions of the rear seat screens.
There's no pictures of the engine bay so we can only assume that the new S-Class will either come with the already available 3.0-litre gasoline straight-six or an AMG 4.0-litre V8.
The current generation S-Class has been around since 2014, so it’s way due for a refresh.
When can we expect to see it in the flesh on our roads? Kita sama-sama tunggu.
